With more than one million books in print worldwide, Jasper Fforde's beloved series charms a growing number of readers with each new adventure. In "The Woman Who Died a Lot," Thursday Next faces her trickiest assignment yet.
When her former SpecOps division is reinstated, Thursday assumes she's the obvious choice to lead the Literary Detectives. Instead, she's put in charge of the Swindon All-You-Can-Eat-at-Fatso's Drink Not Included Library. But where Thursday goes, trouble follows. As the new Chief Librarian faces one-hundred-percent budget cuts and the ever-evil Jack Schitt, the Next children face their own career hiccups and possible nonexistence.
